  • Machine wash cold. Tumble dry medium. Do not bleach. Do not iron. Do not dry clean. Avoid the use of fabric softeners.

    The Trials Jacket utilizes NeoShell fabric for the awesome breathable-waterproof performance. BUT you must regularly wash your jacket (as described here) to maintain the performance. If your jacket is not washed in this way, dirt and body oils contained in sweat will prematurely degrade the performance. Using a detergent intended for use on waterproof breathable garments and the care instructions above will help to prolong the life of your jacket. As soon as water fails to bead up and roll off your garment it is recommended to re-apply an aftermarket DWR treatment to maintain the breathability of the garment.

Trials Softshell Jacket

We’re completing the seasonal circle with a full-featured, highly breathable, waterproof softshell jacket. Polartec® NeoShell® protects from the rain and allows airflow to quickly vent and evaporate sweat. Multiple zips and a custom venting system allow you to shed heat in a hurry during extreme exertion. Go farther, go harder, stay dry when the skies open up. Those dark clouds on the horizon are just another challenge.

Fabrication & Features

  • We chose Neoshell® for its perfect blend of rain protection and high breathability
  • Mechanical waterproofing means the fabric itself is waterproof for the life of the jacket
  • Additional Z-fold vent on the back for more breathability
  • Mesh lined hand-warmers with extra tall zips for additional ventilation
  • Stow-away hood with cinch cord
  • Soft touch collar
  • Chest pocket for valuables
  • Fully taped
  • Forearm vents
  • Snap closure cuffs
  • Cinch hem
  • Waterproof center front zip
  • Imported (Vietnam)


gear patrol's review of kitsbow Origin AM Short

"Beautiful and with all the bells and whistles, the Trials jacket is built by one of the most stylish mountain bike clothing brands in the world. A Rapha for the off-road set...the Trials is as comfy as a soft shell while performing like a hardshell jacket."

"Softshell feel, hardshell performance. Impossible? Tell that to the designers at Kitsbow. These guys obsess over fabrics. And their Trials Jacket with wrist vents and a helmet compatible hood is the shit. Pardon my french. It's waterproof thanks to Polartec's Neoshell fabric: windproof, waterproof and insanely breathable. There are wrist vents, a roll top hood, a Napoleon pocket, adjustable cuffs and waist, and looks absolutely baller."

gear patrol's review of kitsbow Origin AM Short

"When it comes to minimal, well-designed, tonal mountain bike clothing, one brand stands out above the rest: Kitsbow. The Petaluma, CA based brand is making some of the best mountain bike clothing on the market. Pieces like the Origin A/M short and the Trials Softshell waterproof jacket epitomize thoughtful design and have become staples in my mountain bike kit."
